There are a number of key performance indicators and operational indicators that we closely monitor to determine and demonstrate progress across the HRA.
Through our performance management regime, we use evidence to understand how well we have delivered on our ultimate ambition to make the UK a great place to do health research and to build patient confidence in health research.
We have set out key performance indicators for each high level business objective, together with the component measures that will be used to make judgements on the successful improvement and delivery of these indicators.
The HRA Board reviews progress against the delivery of objectives quarterly as part of our board meetings and our Leadership Team review progress monthly.
